Comments: I sorted out my swatching-stash box the other day and unearthed about 20 little  0.5g - 6g 
balls of yarn, in a bunch of different colours  - which means its time for me to start knitting colourwork patterns!  :)  This one might be fun as just one stripe across the yoke of a kid's coat or something.  Its a little thin to do it just as one stripe on an adult sized garment - maybe it would work better on the cuff of a larger item?
